looking at. secondly, i am president obama's proposal is a tax credit for companies to bring manufacturing back or invest back in the united states in communities and create jobs and proposed a 20% tax credit for those types of companies. why do you cut the corporate tax rate across the board? my argument for that is i don't think right now that either my law firm was investment bank of wall street needs that. i say let's target to areas that are in economic growth. so i am sympathetic to taxiing if they can be tied to accountability for companies to actually invest in other communities and create jobs. okay, last question. >> i'm wondering about tax incentives. on the other side, wouldn't it be okay -- i guess that's not quite the right word, to tax the imports? so that it discourages imports and encourages the local benefactor? >> that's a big debate about how much protectionism we should have as a country. my view is that the competition is fair, i think americans can compete and we should not be -- we should not be discouraged competition. the question is what happens at

campaigns you know and the obama campaign is emblematic of this basically thinking of almost everything the campaign does this somehow formed by data but you know, you get down to the state-level campaigns and they definitely are having you know people who are voter file managers who are doing the data and targeting people who are doing the data. you get up to the presidential campaign and one of the things, after they won the nomination built what they call the data science team and increasingly that sort of function is becoming a core function of the campaign. it used to be that there were lists for fundraising or voter list and you could buy them from vendors or consultants and now, you know, basically it's a core function of a modern campaign to have people especially on the voter side just crunching and processing data. >> host: if any of us were to go into the romney campaign are the obama campaign and we were to look around the headquarters how many people -- is there a lot of young staff? what does it look like? >> guest: chicago dozens of people doing voter data and date and fundra

sort of discipline testing. so the smart campaigns and the obama campaigns are emblematic of this and basically, you know, thinking of almost everything a campaign bus as it is somehow informed by the data one. you get down to the state level campaigns and they definitely are having people who work voter file managers who are just dealing with the data and targeting people just dealing with data you get to the campaigns and one of the things the romney campaign said to do this summer after they won the nomination was and increasingly that sort of function is becoming a core function of the campaign and used to be to the extent you have was fund-raising and you could buy them from the vendors or consultants, and now people will have what they call one different things but there's basically a core function of the modern campaign to have people who are especially on the voter side just country and processing data. >> host: if any of us were to go into the romney campaign or obama campaign and look at the headquarters, are there a lot of young staff? what does it look like? >> guest:

obama campaign helps give the democrats a major advantage and in the 08 campaign, as i write about in the book come this is an exceptional experience, it is partly because of the long prairie. he is in the stuff that so many of the people on the campaign came into contact with pretty sophisticated tools and in politics, and a lot of those states who are a field director and using the slowly advanced data in 2008 went out and went to state parties or labor unions or institutions on the left and there's a sort of pollination that is taking place that i think a little more active on the democratic side right now than on the republican side. .. and the ore opponents by using data. but there are scrambling to sort of build anything approaching the scaling of the obama campaign and anything approaching l am ambition of the obama campaign. types you can solve in six months are going to be smaller than what you can solve in four years. >> host: doipg you the campaign is going to rely more on messaging or on the targeting techniques. what is is the mix? did does message still matter. is it

don't all have that quality. the question is does barack obama have the leadership qualities to get a spare? looking at public opinion, and i was struck by the fact if you ask americans whose the strongest leader barack obama or mitt romney, barack obama wins the contest every time. why do you think this? it's a pretty big gap between the candidates at this time. >> guest: i was shocked by the public opinion polls that barack obama and i can't see why because the democratic convention the achievement a tactic that is killing them lowden. >> host: that's the thing most people remember but i also think that obama has been on the front page in terms of foreign policy and retired in terms of the foreign policy that's not what the leader does. >> guest: leader needs to decide the crisis in the euro that can feel like they've done. we have a joblessness crisis right here the president could pick the would resonate with the public and championed them instead of taking obscure from the progressive wish list like health care reform. >> host: we have only a few minutes left. tell us about the b
